We have added some clips and details from the forthcoming Anthrax CD and DVD release Alive 2.
Pioneering metal band Anthrax, one of the genre’s most innovative and respected groups, is back with a vengeance. Commemorating its 20th anniversary by touring with its original lineup for the first time in 13 years, Anthrax is exclusively playing its classics from 1985 to 1991, both on the Gigantour in early September (western Canada and the U.S. Pacific Northwest) and with Judas Priest from September 24 through October 18 (across Canada as well as the East and Midwest of the U.S.) with additional Judas Priest and Anthrax headline dates to be added. Tickets available via this link.
One of the greatest metal bands in history, Anthrax reunited its original lineup of singer Joey Belladonna, guitarists Scott Ian and Dan Spitz, bassist Frank Bello and drummer Charlie Benante with the Alive 2 (2005) DVD capturing the actual meeting in which the five came together for the first time in over 10 years. Along with band rehearsals and behind-the-scenes footage, the DVD also spotlights 13 performances on the group’s triumphant reunion tour.
The Alive 2 (2005) CD reprises the audio for 11 of those songs (“Madhouse” and “I’m The Man” are only on the DVD): “Among The Living,” “Caught In A Mosh,” “I Am The Law,” “A.I.R.,” “N.F.L.,” “Deathrider,” “Medusa,” “In My World,” “Indians,” “Time” and “Be All, End All”–and adds “Antisocial.” In a unique twist, the booklets from the DVD and CD releases form an exclusive poster.
In addition, just prior to the release of these four landmark collections, Anthrax will launch a new fan club Web site (to supplement its longstanding anthrax.com headquarters). The Anthrax CDC, home of the official Anthrax worldwide fan club, will be the online source for Anthrax exclusive content, contests, merchandise, etc. AnthraxCDC.com will be the place to mosh in cyberspace.
